Stephenie LaGrossa marries; Apprentice Jennifer Murphy married Extreme Makeover’s dentist; Scott Savol weds

The reality TV pool just got a little shallower, as three reality stars got married on Friday. Survivor Guatemala and Survivor Palau cast member Stephenie LaGrossa got married on Friday, as did Apprentice 4 candidate Jennifer Murphy, who married the dentist from Extreme Makeover.

Stephanie “wed her longtime boyfriend, high-school history teacher Michael Ward, 33, on Friday in Seaside Heights, N.J., the Jersey Shore town where they first met,” according to People magazine. Palau castmate Tom Westman and Guatemala castmate Danni Boatwright showed up.

On the same day, former Miss Oregon Jennifer, the more airheady Jennifer on the fourth season of The Apprentice, married Bill Dorfman, who fixed people’s teeth on ABC’s original makeover series. They were married at Trump National Golf Club in California, and Donald Trump himself attended.

Finally, having not received the memo that reality TV weddings were supposed to take place on Friday, American Idol 4 contestant Scott Savol got married Saturday, according to Reality TV Magazine. He wed Rochelle Waddell, not the girlfriend he was arrested for “roughing up”.
